    Build bigger front delts

    The bar shouldn't rest directly on your collarbone, it should be lying accross your front delts. Do you do them with cross-arms or do you hold the bar like you're going to military press? If you go cross-arm, you might want to try using one of those sqaut pad thingys that wrap around the bar. You might look a little sissy though, just giving you a heads up!

  3. Incorrect holding pisition is often due to a lack of shoulder mobility. Make sure you warm up your shoulder joint and perform some mobility drills before you start FS.
